In addition to public speaking, Lee added publishing a quarterly newsletter to her law practice. Each quarter, Lee researches and publishes on matters of interest to her clients in a Special Report. She is also a featured blogger for the Needy Animator.

Earlier this year, Lee published a Special Report entitled International Art Crime and Wartime Looting. Art and antiquities looting is as old as the most ancient civilizations, and has recently experienced a boost in fame due to news reporting, the opening of a new art database, and a new film depicting events, which surrounded the theft and return of one of the most prized paintings of the twentieth century. This article takes into account history, laws, and current events to provide an entertaining and informative view into the global art business.

In June, Lee teamed up with the Needy Animator to publish Copyright For the Freelance Artist, Pt. 4: A Case Study of MomoCon. This Special Report explores cosplay, anime music videos, doujinshi, fan art, and fan subs, discusses how MomoCon addresses copyright issues in these activities, identifies risk, and suggests how to reduce risk and comply with the law.

 

Professional Goals:

Lee is uniquely positioned to advise clients on their own business practices. In addition to demonstrating a lifelong passion for the creative and performing arts, Lee is an entrepreneur, owning and managing her own law practice since March 2013.

Lee speaks fluent French and holds a dual citizenship with the United States and the European Union (France). She therefore has the ability to pursue business opportunities whether locally or globally for her dynamic clientele.
